Pollen Park is a great game for kids that I learned about on the excellent blog, Teachers Love SMART Boards. Pollen Park takes kids on a journey with a bee to collect the pollen needed to make the queen bee’s honey. Pollen Park introduces students to the concepts of pollination and seed dispersal. Students will also be introduced to the parts of and functions of a flower.
Applications for Education
Pollen Park could be a fun educational game for elementary school students. The game can be played individually or with a partner or two. As allergy season approaches in the northern hemisphere (if it hasn’t arrived yet) this game is a timely resource.
